Does Anyone Else Get Body Aches When There IBS Is Flaring Up?
A myIBSteam Member asked a question πŸ’­

I was just wondering does anyone experience body aches and fatigue with IBS? Last night after I went to sleep I started having body aches and was like NO!! I can.t get sick... I did have a flare up yesterday and it when on all day and apparently through the night with the aches and then this morning too. I've been on a light diet since yesterday. Just curious if body aches is normal. I feel so sleepy and run down

Yes I get body aches and fatigue. I also get really bad cramps that are very painful and it doesn't matter what I eat. If I have plans I just don't eat anything.

Yes after an IBS-D episode 6 or so trips to the loo
In half an hour feel Exhausted 😩 Inflamed tummy
It’s been happening every day now
And too afraid to venture out for special occasions
And can’t eat while out
And today Christmas Eve and tomorrow it’s Christmas πŸŽ„
And both days we will be out at family gatherings 😳🀭

It’s a case of Will I be able to go or not πŸ€”πŸ˜πŸ˜’
